. joe biden says he would impeach somebody that would do what he was about to do. >> i was chairman of the judiciary committee i teach this this is something i know. i got together and to write a piece pointing out the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against 70 million people unless we are attacked. and if he does, i would move to impeach him. the house obviously would have to do that. i don't say it lightly. i say it because they should understand that what they were threatening and saying and what was adding up to be what looked like the rest of the war would be the most disastrous thing that could be done that i can think of. >> could this be more clear? >> well, here is the funny ing about this. biden presides over the senate. he would preside over his own impeachment. i suggest he come to the senate floor and reiterate his own position. he would be impeaching his administration. they need to come before a joint session of congress and lay out their case and if they want to take the nation to war they need to convince the majority of congress
at the white house. vice president joe biden is here at the white house. chuck hagel, the chairman of the joint chief, martin dempsey, so all of that giving an indication that the president is close to making a decision, but because white house officials are saying this is not about imminent or commenced operations, perhaps we will be hearing about something else. we should also note this administration was set to start briefing members of the senate today, members of the house tomorrow, to fully get them up to speed on what is happen ng syria and so, it will be interesting to find out whether or not the president's comments have any impact. the other thing we should point out and this is just a small, minor thing, is that according to a note distributed to reporters here at the white house, a telepromter has been set up in the rose garen for the president's address. i only say that because yesterday, his comments were very much off the cuff. he had some notes in front of him, but he was not reading from prepared remarks, but this statement indicates that perhaps he will be doing that this afte
", quote, political allies of vice president joe biden have concluded he can win the 2016 presidential nomination even if >> joining me now to respond are former clinton pollster and republican strategist. both are fox news contributors. guys, great to see you. first we want to send our best wishes to the biden family. his son was hospitalized. he's been released. but we're praying for them and wishing them well. >> absolutely. >> turning to the presidential race, doug, do you think this news that the vice president is considering a run is keeping hillary clinton awake at night? >> i don't think she has much trouble sleeping about vice president biden. but politics is a volatile business. you never say never. and what i really think vice president biden is doing is preparing for a possible candidacy if hillary clinton for whatever reasons decides not to run. then he'd be the frontrunner. >> the dirty little secret here, tony, vice president biden is actually a pretty good retail politician. he's actually a pretty good candidate out there. whereas hillary clinton is a god awful candidat
called it a moral obscenity and culminated by today where joe biden said there's no doubt the assad regime is responsible. >> mike, the american people are wary of any military involvement in syria. how does the president sell this military action? >> what's important to keep in mind john, this is the second time this year that the obama administration has judge assad to have deployed these chemical weapons. the president has been very hesitant to get involved in the course of the three years of civil conflict under withering response from john mccain on capitol hill. there has been this hesitancy and obviously a war weariness on the part of the american public. i think a good gaining of where the milk stands -- gauge of where the public stands, the point might be academic bit that point john. >> mike thank you. >>> momentum for military intervention, is building in syria as well. president says he's ready to punish those who gassed sifnlings and the british government recalled people to placement. >> david cameron cut short his summer holiday and returned to london to decide what a
vowed that they would fight any u.s. attack at all costs. vice president joe biden joined the course of top officials here in the administration saying today, that president assad and syria was responsible for these chemical attacks and vice president biden suggested there may be unilateral action that could be imminent without congressional or.n. approval. that's interesting, back in the 2008 presidential campaign, candidate biden said of then president bush, if he attacked iran without approval he should be impeached. the boston globe, we checked this, gave all of the candites in 2008 questionnaires for written questions. we checked them and one focused on whether a president could bomb iran without authorization from congress. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain ton
the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm
, a number of republicans have done it that way. on the democratic side joe biden, a guy named joe biden jumped into the race early back in was it, '93 and then got out quickly. getting in early, jim, is not necessarily a guaranty of success. >> no. look, every democrat thought that teddy kennedy would get the nomination, probably in '76. and then in 80 and 84. because he was such a huge name, chappaquiddick notwithstanding. mark shields, veteran democratic pundit likes to joke he was first guy to plan the inauguration for president muskie in 1973. of course he was the democrat who lost to george mcgovern in the primary. there are 30 twist and turns to come. the jon, the fact you're praising iowa's farmland tells me that, gleam in your eye. >> muskie had not shed a tear he might have been president if he hadn't cried in new hampshire. many people may think hillary is foregone conclusion which may not be true but others in the field could be easily running for vice president. as you pointed out, joe biden started really early, he became the choice of barack obama to be vp. so that could b
the alleged use of chemical weapons by the assad regime. speaking last night, u.s. vice president joe biden said there was no doubt chemical weapons were used and those responsible should be held accountable. the british prime minister david cameron's office backed the white house earlier today saying both governments had clear evidence the regime carried out the attacks. cameron reconvened parliament early to vote for a motion on syria on thursday, but some surrounding cautious on international intervention. sergey lavrov has reportedly warned the u.n. that an attack on syria would destabilize the region. hadly gamble is with us on set. >> the russians aren't the only ones worried about what a post assad syria would look like. i had a chance to catch up with an egyptian billionaire and he said, yes, he thinks assad's days are numbered but is deeply troubled about what will happen to the country when assad is gone. >> the problem right now is exactly that. we want to help the syrian people to get out of dictatorship. that is for sure. but under no way fanatic, terroristic elements that oper
not made a decision. and joe biden repeated that line today. the president again repeating that to respond to this deployment of chemical weapons is in america's core self interest, and the president said the syrian government carried these attacks out. if you circumstance -- circle a couple of dates on the calendar here, you mentioned those un inspectors. it's very clear that the administration or any allied coalition is not going to initiate an attack while those un inspectors are on the ground. then tuesday the president is scheduled to leave the country. he was going to go see putin, and that got changed, instead he is going sweden before going to the g20 meeting. a lot of folks think the president might want to consult with leaders at the g20. others say that is not likely to have this hanging in the air while they are talking about the economy. also another wild-card here, if the british go wobbly in his term on this, and parlment does balk, then that throws another twist and angle into the potential timing. >> mike, tell us precedent for this. >> well, i think the most direct preced
it goes. >> exactly. dylan dreyer, thank you. >>> vice president joe biden takes action on guns. >>> plus, the story behind this ax-waving california man going after his teenaged neighbor. "early today" is back in two minutes. >>> stories making news on this friday morning -- disturb voog of a screaming match between a man and a teenager about reckless driving. it turned violent when the man brought an ax into the argument. in this cell phone video, the teen ducks matrix-style and nearly misses getting hit in the head by the blade. bystanders broke up the fight before anyone was seriously injured. >>> on thursday, vice president biden announced two new measures to reduce gun violence. the first new rule will keep them from importing military weapons back into the country. other new measures closed loopholes used by people who would normally fail a background check. >> it's simple and straightforward. it's common sense. it's going to help ensure that machine guns and other particularly dangerous weapons don't end up in the hands of those who, as a matter of law, are not entitled to own the
with the president and reports from scranton, pennsylvania. >> reporter: while both he and joe biden focused on domestic issues, on the international stage president obama found his credibility on the line as he used a cnn interview to comment about the alleged chemical weapons attack in syria that may have killed up to 1,800 people. >> when you start seeing chemical weapons used on a large scale and again we're still gathering information about this particular event, it is very troublesome. that starts getting to some core national interests that the united states has. both in terms of us making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating and needing to protect our allies. >> reporter: that was a nod to deliberation sources say are happening inside the administration over whether the u.s. military will use cruise missiles to punish syrian president bashar al assad yet the president has been talking tough for a long time and has only sent u.s. aid since one year ago this week when he vowed enormous consequences if syria crossed that red line. republicans like john mccain have
for inspectors to conclude whether syria killed 1,300 people last week with chemical weapon. as joe biden said just moments ago, minds are already made up. >> chemical weapons have been used. everyone acknowledges their use. there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> white house press secretary jay carney says that the president is still deciding what form the action will take. chuck hagel says a strike could happen immediately. >> but you are ready to go like that? >> we're ready to go like that. >> america's allies circling the wagons as well. british prime minister david cameron recalling parliament to discuss action. we want to talk about this with retired u.s. army major general and cnn analyst james "spider "marks and jeremy bash, the chief of staff for leon panetta and worked at the cia as well. chuck hagel said the su.s. is ready to act. with what, how and on what targets? >> i tell what you we're going to see initially is a strike limited because it's going against an array of targets that have been identified which be
a moment. i'm going to revisit with you in just a moment but we have vice president joe biden who is speaking in houston before the american legion convention. let's listen in. >> everyone acknowledges their use. no one doubts that innocent men, women and children have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. for we know that the syrian regime are the only ones who have the weapons, have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons and instead of allowing u.n. inspectors immediate access, the government has repeatedly shelled the sites of the attack and blocked the investigation for five days. at president obama's direction, all of us and his national security team have been in close touch with our foreign counterparts. the president believes, and i believe, that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, wo
evidence of chemical attacks vice president joe biden said there is no evidence that gassed their own people. echoing calls for military action and some reports suggest the countdown to u.s. strikes could now be mere hours. cnn's chris lawrence is at his post at the pentagon. good morning, chris. >> good morning, carol. well, yes, the military is ready, but u.s. officials say there is still work to be done behind the scenes. that includes making sure allies have the authorization they need. making calls to key members of congress and declassifying some of the proof that details of which may surprise you. the latest warning to syria comes directly from the white house. >> those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable. >> another sign to expect action, u.s. officials all but telling u.n. inspectors, get out of the way. >> it's clear the security situation isn't safe for the team in syria. >> reporter: the defense secretary told the bbc u.s. ships are positioned and preparations complete. >> we are ready to go. >> reporter:
what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
innocent children. joe biden said there is no doubt who is to blame. >> the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons. have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past. have the means of delivering those weapons. have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked biochemical weapons. >> bill: the white house saying there must be a response to last week's attack. president obama is still deciding what that response will be. we have team fox coverage, jonathan hunt live here in new york with with a look at the other countries calling for action. but first to jennifer griffin live at the pentagon with us this evening. jennifer, good evening to you. what would a u.s. military strike look likes a it stands now? >> bill, a senior u.s. official tells fox that any strike on syria is likely to last hours, not days. according to u.s. military sources, there are no plans in this initial mission set to go after assad's chemical weapons. it is not possible to carry out a surgical strike on chemical weapons storage facilities, assad is estimated to have 1,000 tons of t
another country without congressional consent. here is joe biden. >> i'd like to be clear. the president does not have the authority to launch military action in iran without first seeking congressional a authorization. >> we don't believe any authority the president has would give him the ability to go in without an act of congress. >> the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a country of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked. and if he does, if he does, i would move to impeach him. >> congressman, just to clarify. joe biden from 2007 and nancy pelosi and harry reid all talking about how they felt then about president bush. what do you think is the biggest obstacle for the president? it seems as if republicans in congress, they are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place on giving the go ahead for this. but then allowing the president to almost seem as the dove turned neocon. >> the republicans for past several months have been criticizing the president for doing nothing and now th
, the first lady, michelle obama, also vice president joe biden and joe biden, they're expected to travel to key states to educate the public and encourage the folks to enroll in the new coverage options that are out there in america. in the meantime, the religious right spent the summer bearing false witness against obama care. these republicans have lied. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. as people of faith, i'm a born again believer in jesus christ. and i believe that it is part of my duty as i an believer in christ and what he has done for me that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst. >> well, her words speak for themselves. don't they? they have threatened to shut down the government over this. >> the continuing resolution that funds congress expires on september 30th. i've publicly stated as has mike lie and marco rubio and a number of other senators that i will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds even a single penny of obama care. >> most of all
this weekend at a cancer hospital in houston. his father, vice president joe biden, was seen leaving the md anderson cancer center yesterday. biden is not giving specifics about his son's procedure. the vice president's heading to scranton, pennsylvania, where he grew up, for an appearance tonight with president obama. >> atlanta journal constitution says the president called a woman who encouraged a gunman to give himself up at a georgia elementary school. the president thanked antoinette tuff for her courage and calm. tuff received the call yesterday as she was in the makeup call getting really to appear on "anderson cooper 360." she said talking to the president was awesome. >> there are flash flood warnings in the colorado springs area this morning. up to 5 inches of rain fell yesterday in parts of colorado. it led to many water rescues and several road closings. there was also large hail that looked a whole lot like snow. some residents are being advised to move to >>> good morning. and happy friday! we have a great friday weather- wise coming your way as we're going to see the clouds
. i think joe biden and there are other folks out there that would probably like to be considered. is she anointed? is it over? >> well, yes. but and here is the important thing. you remember the republicans in 2012 when they believed anybody could beat barack obama. you remember michele bachmann saying any one of us on this stage could beat barack obama. and in press row you heard a sharp intake of. [gasp] as she said that. any one of us. republicans went through a period of time where anybody could beat barack obama with whom do we want to beat him? and we had santorum and cane and goodrich and bachmann and all of this stuff because republicans thought -- some republicans thought that beating obama would be a lay down hand. now it's democrats' turns to beat this assumption. they believe the republican party because they watch most television stations and read most newspapers. republican party is ruined overdefeated, they are sowing salt in the wounds of the g.o.p. dead forever. anybody could beat ted cruz or anybody could beat rand paul. when will they start indulging do we real
the united states government, white house, secretary kerry, joe biden, the higher the risk people say whatever the united states is saying is to support israel, western tendencies. there is all about in the mix. whatever we say is not how things are seen in the region. stuart: what is the feeling amongst muslims? one group has attacked another and killed them with poison gas. is there no repulsion here? >> most have been here before. this happened in 2007. yes, it's ironic, yes, it's hard to understand, but israel has done anything similar to what saddam hussein or asad in syria has done. there would be protests every day up and down the street, but mostly broadly muslim violence, maybe 20% of the population globally. stuart: muslims killing muslims by the millions now guessing by the hundreds, no demonstration on the street, nothing happens. we can't understand that. >> it is human nature. when the irish killed the irish, it is a different response. stuart: it is israel, america, the wicked christians, the jews. speaker that is how the middle east acts. it is easy to blame the old cr
? >> the latest comments we have done in this coming from the white house pool from vice president joe biden, he was shouted a question and ask whether the french were on board with a syria attack, joe biden responded by saying i know everybody is on board and that is all he said, there are plenty who aren't on board. and the fringe made plenty of statements, the questions we had for the past week remain. where will it be and when will it be and we hope to get some type of guidance from the secretary at 12:30. what we expect this afternoon is the release of this intelligence report, that shows the use of chemical weapons in syria so john kerry could be commenting on that. we are not sure what they plan on laying out here. it or what timeline we're dealing with. and he is going to russia for the g 20 summit. and he would not want to launch an attack overseas. you want to be here in the united states. that is guess where, speculation, people commenting, we are not sure if that is the thought of the white house that this is the deliberative process, still wants to get congress on board, and a major
with joe biden the other day and the subject came up, 2016, and although she didn't say, joe, i hope you're not going to run, she certainly made it clear to him, according to my reporting, of people who are familiar with what went on during that breakfast, that he avoided telling her that he would not run. in other words, he left the definite impression he was thinking seriously of running. >> it must have stunned him a bit then, she also had lunch with the president. >> right. >> it looks pretty clear where his allegiance lies. the republicans are getting ready for 2014. and they haven't declared victory 2014, they haven't got a great big motto. they have up in their meeting in boston talking about making it happen. they don't define it. >> they don't tell us how. >> right. >> they've got a lot to explain and a lot to energize their base which is precisely what it's been for the past two presidential elections, that is, 37% identifying themselves as republicans, they got a lot to energize. >> they do. and clinton -- the clintons meantime are actually piling up hundreds of millions of do
and investment companies." >>> the vice-president joe biden breaking news now. just spoke about the situation in syria just minutes ago as the white house considers what action to take against bashar al-assad's regime. >> no one doubts that innocent men, women, and children, have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> trace: the first time anybody from the administration has said absolutely no doubt chemical weapons were used, and that they know who used them. vice-president biden added he and president obama believe those who use c weapons against defenseless men, women and children, ought to be held accountable. >>> most folks would choose not to roll around in glass anywhere but in florida lawmakers are considering grinding its up and spreading it on the beaches. experts say decades of beach erosion and decades of dredging up sands to repreparish the beaches have caused sand to go away, and since the sunshine state soaks up billions of dollars of tourism for the
to the american public has not come out of the president's own mouth so far, it has been joe biden in the clip we saw and before that, john kerry talking about how morally obscene this was. the president himself, his last comments were very equivocal last week in that interview with chris cuomo. even now i see him kind of holding back, reserving his options. but this is snowballing quickly and the president is about to act, not just because of syria, he's worried about iran, he has to be worried about iran in the sense that whatever he does to defend the red line he laid down months ago is going to be closely watched by iran, has its own nuclear weapons program, a new president that's been making overtures about negotiation. >> the audience is bigger than assad and syria if you take military action. the audience i iran, north korea, it is potential users of wmd. this is a key moment for the president. i think there are calls now from congress as we saw that they want some form of consultation, possibly even a vote. i think it would be in the president's self interest to go down that road, to get
's crucial to determining what punishment as i think joe biden called it, and the french ministers have been saying. there must be a consequence, a price to be paid for having done this. in principle i agree with that. but we must be sure we're punishing the right person, and -- and i'm taking the purely intellectual or perhaps slightly political point that it's in everyone's interest that the indication of that person, that authority that is held responsible, be not simply on the basis of gut feeling or the best -- you know, that's what we think. we need it as hard evidence to show the world the proof. and once that is done, the picture will look very different indeed. >> tonight there are indications president obama has a number of options to deal with syria. patty has more. >> reporter: the obama administration says it will respond to this, but the goal, they insist is not to get rid of the syrian president but to send him a message. >> it is not our policy to respond to this transgression with a regime change. >> reporter: they say no decision has been made, but it seems likely the respo
obama has been strangely silent on this subject in recent days. leaving it to vice president joe biden yesterday to make the case for a war. >> there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> and the white house is expected to release newly de classified ingenls to make the administration pay for the syrian regime is responsible for a chemical weapons attack killed hundreds last week. at the same time the white house is careful to say bish
. certainly the position of barack obama and joe biden -- >> bill: i meant for the whole world to see, look, we're taking this seriously, but why do we have to do it on friday? you know, we don't have to do it that -- >> also a muslim holiday, but that doesn't leave enough time for a two to three-day attack before the president gets on a plane to saint petersburg. >> bill: why would he launch that will blow up every kind of thing in the summit? pardon the pun. >> that yes question. why do this you're not going to be pose assad, why do this if you're not going take the weapons out of his hands, lots of whys. >> bill: rosen said the degrading of it. we should be very deliberate and methodical. there's no rush on this. gentlemen, thank you very much. we appreciate it. plenty more aheads "the factor" moves ahead this evening. is facebook addictive and dangerous to your health? dr. keith ablow says yes. and then more miley cyrus and bradley manning. no, manning doesn't want to be miley. it's a whole differenthnology gives you security. technology gives you control and now technology gives you ho
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o
here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger
. they are standing firm behind the president. the president went out and made phone calls to john kerry, joe biden. they finalized the decision this morning. >> we were all glued watching john kerry give this long drawn out dramatic speech about making the case for going, at least some military action, with syria and now this. why put john kerry out there on friday and then less than 24 hours later say, we're going to hold our horses a little bit here? >> reporter: that's a very good question. john kerry will be on the sunday morning talk shows tomorrow morning including state of the union. in some ways john kerry was not only talking about what he thinks and what the administration thinks, he was responding to what was happening around the world. the united nations had really in the minds of the white house had really stimmied this president. they could not go to the u.n. security council and say give us a vote for striking syria because russia was saying no. we're not going to give you that vote. the united kingdom, britain that's always there with the united states just had that traumatic vote
that vice president joe biden, a 30-year senator, was heavily involved in it. he was so far out on the limb it was pathetic. he didn't have backing from the u.s. coming, nato, arab league, denounced by egypt, denounced by jordan. this was a loser. a limited military strike wasn't going to change the situation on the ground. >> general, we have also seen reports that some within the military, actually, wrls concerned about the way the president was proceeding. i would assume this alays some of their concerns as well. >> nobody with eight brain cell who had military experience thought this was a good idea. there was a letter that said don't get involved in a ground civil war. if you do get involved. if you've written your political objective and you want to deter assad from threatening his own people. 100,000 dead. ruined half the country. then use meaningful military american measures. it could destroy the syrian armed forces in 60 days. but not with 200 tomahawks. >> when you hear the president talk about a limited strike. that sounds shorter than 60 days. how realistic do you think it is?
